A Google Script application can exist on its own, within a Google Document/Spreadsheet or as a standalone web service. All you need to get started is a Google Drive account. In this presentation, we will walk through the creation of each of these types of applications and discuss how each type of application can be useful.
At the Georgetown University Library, Terry has deployed a number of simple applications (http://georgetown-university-libraries.github.io/#google-sheets) for library staff using Google Apps Script.
bio:: Terry Brady is a software developer in Seattle working for the Georgetown University Library. Terry is a committer for the DSpace (http://dspace.org/) repository platform.
